Wildfire Impact on Texas: From January to September 2011

Statistics and photographs can convey some of the tragedy, but the full impact of Texas wildfires can only be truly understood by witnessing the devastation first-hand. As the threat of wildfires continues unabated across our state, it's vital that all Texans continue to heed all warnings, respect burn bans and refrain from any outdoor activities that can result in fire. Even routine activities can result in tragedy with the speed these fires can spread.
